Use a point for the beginning and then a quote, break it down, mention language skills and techniques being used in that quote. Explain it and write how it makes the reader/audience feel. Hope this helps!

so i am meant to pick out a quote analyse it then pick out a word write the connotations of it and then analyse that exact word by talking about language skills and techniques (btw how do I talk about language skills and techniques and how do i remember them all) and then write 2 sentences analysing it and then write about the reader?

As many as you like, so long as they are germane.

It doesn’t matter how many sentence you write but as long as it’s good. So for like language technique they are like metaphors and similes, skills are adjectives and verbs. So just pick those out and write why the writer has that and such. You can use PETER to remind you so these are:
Point
Evidence
Techniques
Explaintion
Reader

Best of luck!
